New Kindle Model?????

Is there any chance that the new Kindle will come out soon?

I am interesting in nook from BN but still want to know if there is any other choice especially from Kindle.

The Kindle 2 just released in February and the new International version of it earlier this month. I don't think there will be a newer Kindle any time soon.

Honestly I thought we'd see a model for the christmas period. If nothing is released by mid November we can assume they have skipped a christmas product release and we won't see anything new till 2010.

The DX does need some improvements, that's for certain. The B&N device might be of concern to Amazon as would be the potential Apple tablet. So I don't think they would be sitting on their hands, but working feverishly on something hehe.

I would say that if kindle has a new model that support more ebook format then I can leave with it. But for now I still cannot make a decision yet. I used to have a EZ Reader but not happy since it does not have a dictionary build in then I returned it. Now, just want to see if there is any ebook that better than kindle, sony, and new nook that will come out.

Since all the rendering is done via software, I don't see that they need a new model to add formats, just a software upgrade.

Perhaps they'll give us a firmware update (folders anyone) for Christmas. But, I'm not holding my breath.

There's almost no chance of a new kindle model coming out anytime soon. Amazon doesn't do yearly updates like apple does and as stated before they technically just came out with the DX and the International version which is now standard with the semi recent price drop of 259. I'm pretty sure this is as good as it'll get and I don't even think Amazon will drop their price for the holiday season. They've already dropped it from 359 to 299 and now 259 in less than a year.

That may be the question, but I was responding to the notion that it would require new hardware.

Device: i have just ordered an Ebookwise 1150 on ebay and awaiting delivery
Dear Friends,
I am new to the forum and have joined only today. It is my curiosity about the ebooks that has pulled me to this forum. I live in New Delhi (India) and have tried unsuccessfully to obtain an ebook reader here, though a number of PDAs, mobiles and other handheld computers etc. are avaialble. This interest was aroused in this gadget as i do bible reading a lot and need to jump quickly from one chapter to another; may be some of you would admit to this problem sitting in a live bible study class or a church.
My query is which is the most practical way to read ebooks by a not so serious reader, of course the top option would be to just buy an amazon kindle or sony but then do a busy traveling executive selling industrial goods really will have time to go through the 100 or more books that it can store? I am thinking why not a good PDA phone(as it is time to upgrade my plain 3120 classic).
Can you guys help me either to suggest a smartphone with good screensize to read books or suggest if Sony or Amazon or ebookwise is a good choice.
would appreciate if you can help me out of this decision making as i wish to get my hands on one of these at soonest.

If you can get iPhone then that might be one of your choice since you can get a lot of software that can read an ebook from iPhone. I think that might be one of your choice if you don't want to go with eBook reader.
